From Flav’s contest on whocould cook the best fried chicken, to the loogey heard round the world, people where watching “Flavor of Love” in droves, giving the network some of the highest ratings that they ever saw.
With the success of the show, it lead to spin offs, and making some of its contestants household names.
& as with anybody else on TV from the witness of a car accident to your local weatherman.
Who isn't on TV ultimately to get something out of it?
Flavor is a Hip-Hop icon, & even if you didn't grow up on his music, hes still 1 of the coolest guys thats ever been on VH1.
If you never heard Flav back in 1986 or 87, or you weren't around yet, or (worst case scenario) basically were still listening to Debbie Gibson or New kids On The Block...
(Even if its just to get they're point across.) People keep naming all of these other places they've seen Flavs contestants on before, but basically who cares?
If they tried to get on the WWE who cares,if they were on Next oh well,if they're not virgins lol so what...
I wish that Flav had a B-girl on the show like Erykah Badu or Missy Elliot. Now that being said I think some people are taking Reality TV too serious, its just a TV show.
Cause it was cool, & that was HIP-HOP.) From 50 Cents to Nelly to Will Smith to Queen Latifah to Spike Lee anybody that was there would agree Flav was our Bill O Riley, our Red Hot Chili Peppers, our Beatles, our Bono, all rolled into 1. Back then being a female in Hip-Hop was respectable & the B-Girls/ladys got they're respect, (without shaking what they're Momma gave them or backing anything up, although they did have they're sexier dances they were usually just more feminine versions of the same dances the guys were doing.) From Mc Lyte, to Roxanne Shante, Monie Love, Lady Antoinette, Yo-Yo & IBWC to Conscious Daughters or Isis etc.
The girls back then would be pretty or even sexy but they were completely covered up in clothes almost just like dudes, but flyer.
"But he is so patient and I love him to death for that.
To be able to just be there and to still be okay with me letting all that go.
